Taiwanese tech company HTC has released a new series of smartphones on November 11: the Bolt. The new smartphone is fully-loaded with exciting features, including a high-end camera. It is available exclusively on Sprint and HTC's official website.

The HTC Bolt looks similar to other Android smartphones: it has round corners, a small bezel and antenna lines on the back. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat - the latest update of Google's famed OS that comes with several improvements over its predecessor, including enhanced security. The smartphone includes more personalised settings and smarter notifications.

Some of the features of the HTC Bolt include the following: a 16-megapixel rear facing camera that works well in low light and equipped with a "Vivid Flash" for capturing outstanding photos, an octacore Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, and a 3GB of on-board RAM smoother handling of apps.

The HTC Bolt has a 5.5-inch screen with a quad-HD display resolution of 2560x1440 pixels and 534 ppi. It has a Corning Gorilla Glass 5, which,  according to HTC, can withstand breakage from more than five feet. 

Additionally, the Bolt is water, splash, and dust-resistant, allowing it to work reliably in less-than-ideal environments. It has a metallic finish that saves the device from damage.

The smartphone has a 32GB internal space, which is rather small but is nonetheless expandable through a micro SD card slot that supports up to 2 TB capacity.

In terms of battery, the HTC Bolt  has a 3200mAh battery life, delivering more than a day of power on a single charge. It has a Quick Charge technology as well as a battery-boost technology that helps optimize battery usage.

The HTC Bolt, which retails at USD 600, comes with HTC's free UH OH Protection warranty. Customers purchasing the Bolt through can receive a free replacement device for broken screens and water damage.
